Reply Text Box View Limited To Two Lines Unless You Swipe...

Breadcrumbs Mar 15, 2013 06:22 PM

Is anyone else experiencing this issue? When I hit "Reply" to respond to a post (any post except the OP) I now get a very shallow text box where only two lines of text are in view. Hitting "Enter" does not rectify this situation, the only thing that seems to enable a full view of the text box is to swipe the area (I have an ipad and MacBook w Safari) and then finally, the text box expands.

This is a recent development btw. I think it started yesterday.

    This has always happened to me, BC, or it seems. The box does have what I call "an expansion icon" though. I click on it then draw it downward to enlarge the box. I'm only on a PC w FF.

      I'm glad I'm not alone but this is a very new occurrence for me Gio. I'm inclined to think it's a bug. Thanks for your tip, much appreciated.

      Hi Breadcrumbs. I'm unable to reproduce this on either iPad/Safari or Mac OS X with Safari. Can you attach a screen shot of what you're seeing? Tx.

          Thanks for the screen shot. Just curious, what happens if you click inside the reply box? Does it then expand?

          Still haven't been able to reproduce but we'll keep trying. Tx.

            No Deborah, as I type only 2 lines are visible unless I swipe over the box w my cursor. Hitting enter has no effect either.
